[sc. A term applicable] not solely to a chariot. Aristophanes [writes]: "and will this not be rightly so, when I mounted on a dung-beetle's conveyance and saved the Greeks."[1] And elsewhere Aristophanes [writes]: "now is this not an insult and a great conceit that I, Dionysos son of Winejug, am walking and toiling, but him [the slave Xanthias] I let ride, in order that he is not distressed, nor even carrying a burden?"[2]
Greek Original:
Ὄχημα: οὐκ ἐπὶ ἅρματος μόνου. Ἀριστοφάνης: οὐκοῦν δικαίως, ὅστις εἰς ὄχημα κανθάρου ἐπιβὰς ἔσωσα τοὺς Ἕλληνας. καὶ αὖθις Ἀριστοφάνης: εἶτ' οὐχ ὕβρις ταῦτ' ἐστι καὶ πολλὴ τρυφή, ὅτ' ἐγὼ μὲν υἱὸς ὢν Σταμνίου Διόνυσος βαδίζω καὶ πονῶ: τοῦτον δ' ὀχῶ, ἵνα μὴ ταλαιπωροῖτο, μηδ' ἄχθος φέροι;
